Tabitha Caplinger is a friend I’ve never met in person. We used to be fellow authors in the Booktrope Vox Dei stable. Blue Ink Press picked up Tabitha’s books after the demise of Booktrope and since then she knocked it out of the park with Armor Bearer. I read the first two volumes of The Chronicle of the Three—Bloodline and Armor Bearer—and have been waiting not-so-patiently for the third book.
If you haven’t read the first two books yet, I highly recommend you get them and read them. She is a strong writer who communicates a solid Christian theme in her books. To be honest, I decided to read Bloodline, at first, because I wanted to see what writing from a female perspective looked like. I got sucked in and devoured Armor Bearer, as well. Here’s the blurbs for the books:
Zoe thought the loss of her parents would be the most difficult thing she’d ever have to endure. When she began seeing things she couldn’t explain in her new home of Torchcreek, Virginia, she was sure the grief was driving her mad. Instead Zoe discovers she is part of an ancient bloodline, one destined to defeat the powers of darkness from condemning the world. But Zoe, the daughter of the three, isn’t just another descendant, but the key to humanity’s salvation.
In this first installment of the paranormal fantasy trilogy The Chronicle of the Three, Zoe Andrews learns that not all shadows are harmless interceptions of light. Some are a more sinister darkness that wants to torment the soul.
Darkness creeps around every corner as demons gather in the small town of Torch Creek, Virginia. The Destroyer has arrived, and the Reaping is coming closer by the day. Zoe knows it’s her duty as the Daughter of the Three to hold back the shadows, but she doesn’t know how, and time is running out. Zoe and her friends turn to the ancient text of the chronicle for help. Are they strong enough to withstand an enemy who exploits their deepest fears and doubts? Will they find the answers they’re looking for before all of Hell is unleashed?
Zoe’s journey as the prophecy’s promised Daughter continues in this second installment of the fantasy trilogy, The Chronicle of the Three.
The final showdown is fast approaching, and a grief-stricken Zoe is forced to count the cost of her destiny. As the losses mount, her strength wanes.
Even if the Chosen find the Eden Sword in time, will Zoe be strong enough to wield it? Will she be able to stand against the darkness as the promised Daughter of the ancient prophecy? Or will she be consumed by the fear of her nightmares becoming real?
Fear or faith? Even the Chosen must choose. In this final installment of The Chronicle of the Three, light and darkness collide as Zoe discovers there is more than one battlefield in this war.
The third book, The Chronicle of the Three: Eden Sword, is coming soon and now you see what the cover looks like and know the title. Be ready to get it when it comes out.
